A week after officially launching to the public, the Nintendo Switch has successfully sold over 1.5 million units. Nintendo’s latest console has been welcomed into the lives of over 500,000 in the United States and 360,000 in Japan. In addition, European sales come in right under the number of those in Japan, which allow its total number to reach the reported 1.5 million mark.
